A classic Late Bottled Vintage port from this renowned house. Taylors pioneered the late bottle vintage style - it was designed as a 'drink now' alternative to vintage port - and they continue to lead this popular style of port today.
The winery writes "Broad purple black colour with a narrow magenta rim. The character of the 2016 vintage is clearly imprinted on this finely tuned and beautifully balanced LBV. Very bright, intense fruit on the nose, black woodland berry aromas blending with fresher notes of raspberry and plum. Wild herbal notes of resin and balsam lend the wine a lifted, ethereal quality and an additional dimension of complexity. On the palate, the fruit character is denser and more luscious but there is also a fresh grapey quality. The taut, linear tannins of great quality are another hallmark of the 2016 vintage, as is the seam of racy acidity which runs through the palate. The finish is extraordinary long, a seemingly infinite surge of dense berry fruit flavour. This elegant and stylish LBV displays the classic Taylor’s blend of pure, focused fruit with a sinewy muscularity and impressive stamina and depth."
Great after an all black draw. Better than the game
